As invented by me, [livejournal.com profile] the_night_wind and two-thirds of a bottle of port last Saturday night.

Drink whenever:
- Richard forgets about the whole urgent mission to save the world thing and goes off on a sidequest,
- Darken Rahl or one of his minions is surprisingly competent at Evil Overlording,
- Richard and/or Kahlan do something really daft,
- Richard leaps at something with a sword,
- Kahlan Confesses someone
- Zedd appears to be very, very stoned,
- Richard and/or Kahlan get tied up,
- Richard takes his shirt off,
- Kahlan takes her dress off,
- Richard and/or Kahlan disguise themselves as D'Haran troops, and look rather good doing so,
- Richard and Kahlan stumble across some kind of magic that will enable them to shag without magical repercussions, and then don't,
- Whoops, there is a Mord-Sith.

Frankly, I'm amazed we both still have livers.

The Fifteen Character Meme. It goes like this:
1. I make a list of 15 fictional characters.
2. You post questions about entertaining situations they might get into (such as "6 and 7 walk into a pub. What do they order and where do they sit?" or "How do 4, 7 and 15 cope with a zombie apocalypse?").
3. I answer the questions.
4. You try to guess who the 15 characters are.
5. I post the list of the ones you guess.

All right? Then let's play.

The list of characters, with correct guesses included )

And we're done! Good guessing, flist!

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] daphnie_1:

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavours, cartoon moments, women in my fandoms, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in the comments.

Go on, you know you want to. Help keep my brain working on a very boring day.

I've just been reading some of the articles on The Secret History of Star Wars, which is a collection of articles (and a 100-word preview of a book) about the development of the trilogy we know and love (and that other trilogy we know). What really interested me is all the glimpses of the Star Wars we missed - the one where Darth Vader really did betray and murder Luke's father, or where Leia was Luke's love interest not his sister, or where there was a whole episode about Wookiees set on Kashyyyk.

And, of course, there's the alternative world where David Lynch directed Return of the Jedi. I can't help but speculate about how that might have gone. How viscerally nasty would Jabba's court have become? How cryptic would Yoda's dialogue have got?

And this leads me to a fun game to play in your lunch hour.

Pick a continuity, any one you like. Speculate wildly about how it might have gone differently if written by another author.

Let's consider the counterfactual worlds in which Warren Ellis wrote WH40K fiction*, and Joss Whedon was in charge of The X-Files.

Listen, there's a hell of a good universe next door.



*I suspect in this universe Nottingham mysteriously burned down**, among other things.
** Note to self: Warren Ellis probably cannot actually set things on fire with his mind. Probably.
